Rathfinny 2018 Blanc de Blancs


Rathfinny 2018 Blanc de Blancs is the fourth vintage of our elegant Sussex Sparkling, produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes, grown and hand-harvested on the Estate.

Make the most of the exclusive Rathfinny Reserved programme to secure an allocation of our premium Blanc de Blancs which will always be a limited production, as we source the best grapes from across the Vineyard to blend this elegant wine. This is a unique opportunity to secure a guaranteed allocation, at a slight discount to the recommended retail price, prior to release in 2022.


For the first time in Rathfinny’s history, you are invited to reserve an allocation of our prestigious 2018 Blanc de Blancs at an exclusive case price for a limited time only (ready for collection or delivery in summer 2022). Please note, they can only be purchased by the case (6 bottles per case), with the minimum order being four cases (24x75cl bottle cases), or four cases of magnums (12x150cl magnum cases – 3 magnums per case) or a combination of both premium wines.

All wines will be fully dressed with a foil and label prior to release.

Rathfinny 2018 Blanc de Blancs Tasting Note

Crystalline cornsilk in colour, with a vivid nose of lemon verbena and fresh Williams pear that gives way to a delicate, lime-sherbet beading and a creamy mango finish.

Praise for Rathfinny’s Blanc de Blancs

Rob Buckhaven, Brand Ambassador at Rathfinny, talks about our elegant Sussex Sparkling within the Rathfinny Reserved offer; “The Blanc de Blancs is so elegant, with great balance, structure and a lovely richness of fruit, it’s all brioche, lemon and Granny Smith apples.”

He was not alone in his praise for Rathfinny’s Blanc de Blancs. The recent releases of Rathfinny’s Blanc de Blancs received very positive reviews. Wine writer, Jamie Goode (wineanorak.com) described the 2016 vintage as: “One of England’s finest. This is all about precision… This is chiselled and focused, but not austere. Really impressive.. and still so early on in the life of the vineyard. 93/100.”

Meanwhile, Tamlyn Currin (JancisRobinson.com) described it as, “Precise and pointed, high cheekbones and leggy and slender but not bony. Long and stretches out to fill every corner of the mouth…This has a wonderful chalk-sculpted core (with a grace note of fine cement dust) that then reaches around lovely depth of fruit.” High praise indeed.
